A few words from Angie:
What a day was had by one and all ! The weather was perfect, the sun was shining & Menorca Cricket Club was once again the venue for the Fete of the year. A HUGE thank you to all those who helped on the day to make it such a memorable occasion.
This year we saw a number of new stalls, including the Isla Del Rey, Rib Club, Menorca Jeep Safari, Joanne Beauty, Lady Rose Tarot, Pedro Tuduri’s French Champagne & Ellie Cantor’s lovely driftwood gifts in addition to our old favourites Anvil Designs, Binifadet Vineyard, Angie Craven’s jewellery, S’Algar Bowls & Tristan Duligall’s amazing creations.
No one was going to go hungry on the day due to our fabulous bbq & our delicious tea garden. To quench your thirst you could choose between the Club bar(s), the PIMMS tent & the Mojitos tent, & to finish off, Roger’s Ice Cream Van made an appearance for the second year running.
Fiona did an amazing job with the kids, teenager & adult races with even higher numbers than last year lining up to take part. Across the board, the activities were also better attended & the pony rides were a huge hit with the children.
Menorca Charity Players excelled themselves with their Punch and Lulu sketches & we were honoured by a surprise guest from Scotland with his bagpipes! Yet again, both the teddy & the bottle tombola were hugely popular.
A record number of visitors were recorded on the day & the Raffle was a huge success. If you attended – a big thank you. We hope you had a wonderful day. If you missed it, you’ll have to wait until 2017 for the next opportunity. Next year we are hosting a Music Festival on the last Sunday in July so, save the date & come and join us. We look forward to meeting you there!
